Before I had COVID, it really bugged me when people said “sick with COVID” instead of “tested positive for COVID” for those who had no symptoms.
Now it bugs me even more. I really had COVID. I paid my COVID dues in serious symptoms. I want to police the boundaries of my identity as a COVID survivor. Your positive test means nothing unless you really suffered. Go join your own identity group with the rest of the young, thin, fit bastards with robust immune systems. Your “I also had COVID but I had no symptoms” spiel makes no sense. You are not one of us, you wannabe.
